Everything about this little lady is surprising. She's patient and smart, yet fiery and impulsive. I never expected to have a child with curly hair, yet here she is with her golden spirals. She's a comedian, naturally funny. She knows how to hold an audience. She gives away kisses and cuddles to anyone she likes the look of, even if she's just met them. Just don't annoy her, cause she will attack. She's a complete Daddy's girl, yet can push his buttons like no-one else.
Three years ago, my obstetrician said there's no way she would be born that day, yet she arrived. As I said, she's surprising.
I love being surprised by her. I love the joy she brings to our lives. I love her sweetness and her sassiness. Most of all, I just love her.
To celebrate the day, we had family and a couple of close friends come by for cake. I'm glad we kept it small as the weather has been so atrocious we had to keep it inside our tiny house. Our little one had the time of her life.
Here are some pix:

|The girls loved making these flower bikkies.|

|The thing I love most about this cake is the toadstools I made. Strawberries and cream lollies |
cut in half, a mini-marshmallow stalk and white icing dots.

|The knife came out clean, much to the relief of her cousin.|
The girls have cut all of their birthday cakes with our wedding cake knife, I love this tradition we've created.
